I'm not sure about the following, but maybe there is a tool provided by
3com, that you can use to put the card in '10 Base-mode'.
This could be done with the 3c509b (put it in auto, TP or coax mode).
The configuration could be written to the EPROM, so you don't have to use
various commandline options.
